Kevin Kolb needs help in becoming a quality starting quarterback in the NFL. Andy Reid needs a new head coaching job. The Arizona Cardinals need a new head coach.
Are you seeing where I am going here?
To make things clear, it appears as if the Cardinals may not wish to drag out their search for a new head coach, which could mean that Reid is not unemployed for too long. It could also mean a reunion may be in store for Reid and Kolb, as the former head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles may be selling himself to Arizona as someone who can fix his former quarterback in Philadelphia.
The bottom line here is that one former bird is hoping to land a job leading a different flock of birds with one of his former leaders.
Ian Rapoprt of NFL.com cited a source with knowledge of the Cardinals’ coaching interview process with Reid as saying the coach’s sales pitch to the team will be “I can fix Kevin Kolb.”
At this point, the team does not need Reid to fix Kolb. They would settle for once again making him competent.
The Cardinals won their first four games of the 2012 NFL season. They lost 11 of their final 12 games, resulting in a quarterback carousel that included the likes of Kolb, John Skelton, Ryan Lindley and Brian Hoyer. The four combined to throw 11 touchdowns and 21 interceptions.
Kolb is still just 28-years-old after being acquired by the Cardinals in 2011. The team gave up Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and multiple draft picks and then went on to sign the quarterback to a six year contract worth $63.5 million. Needless to say, he has failed to live up to his current deal, but all hope may not be lost.
All they have to do is hire Reid.
Well, according to him.
